Open the Layer Style dialog box by clicking on the Add a layer style button at the bottom-left of the palette and selecting Pattern Overlay from the menu that appears. Select the pattern with which you want to fill your text from the Pattern drop-down menu in the dialog box—you can choose one of the existing patterns, or use your own image as a pattern.
